Professional-level 24-inch, 4K monitor

Key features:
  • 24-inch, 4K display
  • Exceptional colour accuracy
  • Fully adjustable stand
  • Power-saving motion sensor
The NEC EA244UHD is a great high-end monitor for imaging professionals looking to get maximum screen real estate but in a more compact form. It packs a 4K resolution into a modest 24-inch panel, making it ideal if you want a monitor upgrade but don’t want to go supersize.

It isn’t particularly slim or stylish, but comes with a relatively small stand and a slender bezel. Build quality is excellent, however. It’s clad in durable matt black plastic, and all the mechanisms for twisting and adjusting the stand are smooth. The stand can rotate nearly 360 degrees around, height adjustment lifts the top edge of the monitor between 38cm and 51cm from the desktop, and there’s a pivot function for flipping the screen into portrait mode.

A generous selection of connections sits mainly on the underside. There’s a USB 3.0 input for the USB hub, two USB 3.0 sockets, two dual-link DVI, two HDMI, two DisplayPort and a 3.5mm jack audio input. On the right there’s an additional USB socket and the audio output. A motion sensor lies just below the screen and detects whether the user is present, switching the display off when nobody’s around.

The 24-inch, 3,840 x 2,160 IPS screen itself is sharp and bright, offering excellent viewing angles and outstanding colour accuracy. Unfortunately, it’s not quite responsive enough for gaming.
